Route Climbed: SE ridge Date Climbed: March 6, 2004
This peak is geologically unique -- it's made of rhyolite, in a chain of limestone peaks. The Native Americans used obsidian from nearby to make arrowheads. There is still a "pearlite" mine near the base, where one can see hydrated obsidian blown into the neighboring limestone.
